This is the first Python script I've written in a few years, so this is probably a rookie question.
I wrote this script that creates 3 different buffers around a point shapefile, and it works, but doesn't automatically add the buffers to the map, it just saves them in the specified workspace. In my Geoprocessinng options I have it set to add outputs to map and it works with all ESRI tools but not my script. Any ideas? Thanks in advance!
Here is my script:
# Script Name: EpicenterBuffers # Description: Creates 10, 50, and 100 KM # buffers around an epicenter # Created By: Kirstyn Pittman # Date: 11/24/14 import arcpy arcpy.env.workspace = r"H:\Drafting Department\Python\EpicenterBuffers" shp = "Location" distanceList = ["10 kilometers","50 kilometers","100 kilometers"] # Loop through each distance in the distanceList for dist in distanceList: outName = shp+"_"+dist arcpy.Buffer_analysis(shp, outName, dist) print "Finished Buffering"
